Chelsea vs Brighton live stream: match preview

The Premier League's biggest overachievers face its biggest underachievers at Stamford Bridge today, with Brighton looking to do the double over Chelsea for the first time ever. The Seagulls thrashed the Blues 4-1 when they met earlier this season, but could easily have put six or seven on the board before half-time.

Frank Lampard, whose return has fallen rather flat with two limp defeats from two, has made sweeping changes to the Chelsea team, with next week's Champions League rescue attempt in mind. Mykhailo Mudryk, Christian Pulisic and Conor Gallagher are all in the starting lineup, with Joao Felix and Reece James amongst the big names to drop to the bench.

Jason Steele, who has made the No.1 spot his own this season, isn't in the Brighton squad, so Robert Sanchez gets a rare outing. 19-year-old goal machine Evan Ferguson starts as the lone man up front, while Adam Webster stands in for the on-loan Chelsea defender Levi Colwill at the heart of defence.

Lampard won't need reminding that Roberto de Zerbi's men dished out one of the most chastening defeats of his disastrous Everton tenure, a 4-1 demolition that hastened the delivery of his P45. With clashes against Real Madrid, Brentford and Arsenal to come, Chelsea fans have good reason to fear a lengthy wait for their next positive result. 

However, miracles do happen, and Brighton fans would testify that it's often at their expense.

A calamitous quartet of refereeing blunders consigned them to a 2-1 defeat at Tottenham last weekend, all but dashing their hopes of Champions League qualification. It means Brighton have been on the wrong end of two of the biggest daylight robberies in the league all season, their unfathomable 1-0 defeat to Fulham being the other.

Chelsea’s woes, by contrast, have been entirely self-inflicted, and early evidence suggests that Todd Boehly has glimpsed rock bottom and taken a bulldozer to it with his appointment of Lampard. That talk show host and West Ham supporter James Corden may have had a hand in the decision should terrify all Chelsea fans.

Chelsea vs Brighton kicks off at 3pm BST / 10am EDT at Stamford Bridge today. Make sure you know how to watch a Chelsea vs Brighton live stream from anywhere.
